Pretty ribbon and Bows

Welcome to my blog wow already in to July and tomorrow is the Independence day ! This Challenge was so fitting for  tomorrow, and all the negative things out there about Flags.. how sad !  I personally don't have a issue with the Confederate Flag. as it is all about heritage & History not race ! I love America and am very Proud of being an American,  so Tomorrow we will all in our own way Celebrate the 4th.
 God Bless America and I also want to Thank all our Veterans and our Active duty..

I love playing along in all challenges and I thoroughly enjoy creating my cards. I used nave blue, cream & red card stock,
 all from my stash. I have not received my July Ribbons yet so I went with what I have. I added red satin and blue and white star ribbon & Bow from RRR May Ribbon Club Assortment. I also used Blue pom pom's from my stash .
